Missouri’s “Show-Me State” sobriquet is almost too red-district for your blue laws, Feminists Against Pornography should consider “FAP”-ing more often, and soap operas start offering public education about HIV/AIDS. Also, Pakistani police can’t tell the difference between a birthday party and a marriage ceremony while the media can’t tell the difference between a gay man and a trans woman, and as more homosexual Americans come out of the closet, gay-bashing loses its cool.
On this week’s episode, sexuality author, educator, artist, and shaman Lee Harrington joins Emma and I, sharing inspiring and personal stories in a far-reaching conversation snaking through the importance of bardic traditions to modern-day politics. Lee also tips us off to myriad projects he’s currently undertaking, including editing two anthologies: one, Spirit of Desire: Personal Journeys in Sacred Kink asks for your stories
around altered states of consciousness, sexuality with intent, sex magic, and BDSM and its intersections with faith, while the second, Coming to Sir, is Lee’s invitation to
explore our relationship to this often-said but rarely explored word. Coming to Sir is also a fundraiser project benefiting the Community-Academic Consortium for Research in Alternative Sexualities. Our sincerest thanks to Lee for his insight, contributions, and continued capitol-W Work in this world.
Don’t forget, if you’re on the East coast, to join Emma and I at KinkForAll Washington DC 2 this Saturday on June 12th. Some of our favorite sexuality activists, speakers, thinkers, and bloggers will be at this free, sex-positive, day-long unconference. Friend of the show Molly Ren has been doing a fantastic job unorganizing so far, and will be setting up at The DC Center at about 9 AM for a prompt 10 AM start!
